Because there’s nothing more urgent than a cool beer on a hot summer’s day, we give you the odd and amusing story of a 57-year-old woman from Florida who asked the paramedics to fetch her a cold one. According to the police report, the woman called 911 two times that day to report a fake medical emergency.
Florida Woman Made 28 Fake Emergency Calls Since February
The St. Petersburg authorities recently arrested 57-year-old Jennifer Sue Johnson and charged her with making a fake 911 call.
According to the police report, the woman first dialed the emergency number at not and told the emergency operator that she’s not feeling well and needs help.
Four hours later, the woman would again dial 911 claiming that she’s in need of medical assistance. Within a couple of minutes, a team of paramedics arrived at the woman’s house.
Sue Johnson opened the front door and told the paramedics that there’s no medical emergency. When the authorities confronted her about the call, the woman admitted to calling 911 because she ran out of beer and didn’t feel like going to the store to fetch some more.
Following the odd confession, the St. Petersburg resident was taken into custody and charged with making a false emergency call. Jackson was released on Saturday morning.
According to a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, this is not the first time the woman calls 911 for beer. In fact, records show that since February, Sue Johnson called the emergency line 28 times.
Regrettably, the St. Petersburg woman isn’t the only person to make fake emergency calls. Every day, the 911 dispatcher receives odd calls from people. For example, an individual contacted the emergency dispatcher because he was concerned about turning into a werewolf and another only calling because he had trouble with his PlayStation.
